Reviews - What do customers think about La nave de un millon de anos?

Thru the Currents of Time: A Voyage from Phoenicia to the Stars.   Jul 3, 2006
Ediciones B has published many important authors in Spanish translation as Cordwainer Smith's complete works, Orson Scott Card's "Ender Saga" and Connie Willis' opus amongst other.
Now here is a classic author: Poul Anderson. "The Million Years Boat" is one of his best novels.
It is constructed as a series of short stories telling about immortal people (or almost immortal). The different characters crisscross their ways along centuries and millennia. The outcomes of these encounters are sometimes friendly, sometimes antagonistic; never innocuous.

Poul Anderson show his talent to mix action, drama and humor with deep meditations about meaning of life, ethics, gender conflict, ethnic discrimination and many subjects more. He includes accurate different historical backgrounds for each episode ranging from ancient Greece thru far future.

The story is great; it mainly follows Phoenician seaman Hanno in his eternal quest to find more people like him. He is very special. He never get sick or old, his teeth grows up again when he loose one, he recover very quickly from injuries.
He soon discover that his bless is also his curse. He remains unchanged yet consorts and descents grow old, die and vanish. Neighbors usually react violently to his "witchery" blaming him to practice strange deals with demons.
To evade these circumstances Hanno becomes a master in changing personalities and evading suspicion.
The narrative starts to catch momentum and conclude with a very interesting piece situated in a far future full of new possibilities.

Take a joyful romp thru it, you won't be disappointed!
